  2. To the Aragon Family I wish to send my condolences from the botton of my heart and to let Barbara know that her mother was cool and I enjoyed knowing her and enjoyed the good food she would make. I would also like to say that your mother always treated me like family and if you ever need anything just give me a call. We all know that your mom was really sick but now she is in a better place where there is no pain and suffering she is also with her loving husband. I will never forget her.

  3. Barbara, please know I am thinking of you, all of you. I would love to be there, but just can not at this time. I have great memories of your mama, mostly involved cooking and her kitchen. I was very lucky to have known her. She always greeted my children and myself with hugs and kisses. I pray for strength so that you and your family can get through this. May God bless all of you now and always. I love you Barbara.
